He lost his brother. She lost her dream. Together, they might find what they’re really looking for.
Holly Stanford is doing the best she can with the restaurant she inherited from her late uncle. But after her fiancé abandons her and the business, Holly regrets having given up her dream of becoming a pastry chef. Now a few bad financial decisions might cost her everything, including her hope for the future.
Jed Henning has done well with his new company despite his prodigal brother’s behavior. When Jed‘s father, the controlling member of the board of directors, temporarily suspends operations until his sons work out their differences, Jed resentfully chases his brother, Chris, to Boise. There Jed rents a basement apartment from Holly and hopes to convince Chris to get his act together before their company collapses.
Unaware that Holly is the one person who can help him get through to Chris, Jed starts the tough work of reconciliation armed with little more than a few family photographs, a stack of old letters, and a Bible that belonged to his great-grandfather, Andrew Henning. And as romance blossoms between Holly and Jed, the story of Jed’s great-grandfather highlights the power of God across the generations and the legacy of a family’s courageous faith.

This was a sweet romance. I liked the chemistry between Holly and Jed. It did take me some time to get invested in the side story of Jed’s great-grandfather. I was touched by it, but did feel like there was a disconnect between the two stories overall.
Holly was once bitten, twice shy when it came to commitment. I liked how Jed worked hard to earn her trust. Her personality was also a good balance to Jed’s particularly when it came to his feelings toward his brother. She helped him overcome his anger.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
When Jed was forced to handle a personal matter for his brother. It was sweet and endearing.
What I didn’t like about this book:
Even though I was touched by the side story, I didn’t feel the connection with the current story.
Would I recommend this book to others? I would recommend this as a quick clean inspirational romance. This is the third book in the series. It reads well as a stand alone.
Note: I received this book complimentary as a participant of the Prism book tour. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed are my own.
